Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-574) Case-insensitive representation of INI files
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2014 20:20:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-574?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13968787#comment-13968787

Oliver Heger commented on CONFIGURATION-574:
--------------------------------------------

If case-insensitive keys are default for Windows INI files, we should support this. I guess,
it would make sense to have a kind of switch which enables or disables case sensitivity.

In newer versions - especially in the upcoming 2.0 release - INI configurations are hierarchical.
This would allow us to define a special _ExpressionEngine_ supporting case-insensitive queries.
Such an expression engine could then also be used for other hierarchical configurations.

Since most of the applications treat the keys of INI files case-insensitive it would be great
to be able to tell the HierarchicalINIConfiguration as well to do so.
